“Dry Season” and Vermin Abatement

It’s the dry season now which supposedly means it doesn’t rain much.  That’s mostly true.  You can see that it’s pretty hazy from the lack of rain and from people burning things.  The jungle almost looks like water when it’s obscured by the haze.  If you look closely below the wing, the little speck is a UN 1900 flying in the opposite direction 1000′ below.

While in Goma during an abnormally strong thunderstorm in the supposed dry season, I heard the cat making a strange sound.  I figured that she was scared of the rain and opened the door and saw this:

It’s Air Serv Goma’s Vermin Abatement Program earning her keep.

Some parts of Congo are never completely dry.  This is on final approach to N’Dolo airport in Kinshasa:

Look how nice the pavement is:
